BOSTON (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - All three people who died during the bombings at the Boston Marathon have now been identified.
A Boston University grad student, a 29-year-old woman who was originally confirmed to be alive and an 8-year-old boy were killed. More than 170 were injured after a pair of bombings near the finish line of Monday's race.
The FBI says the attack was carried out with kitchen pressure cookers packed with explosives, nails, ball bearings and other pieces of metal.
Investigators are combing through surveillance videos and they are asking the public to come forward with photos, videos or any clues that could them help find who carried out these attacks.
The White House has announced that President Obama will visit Boston Thursday and attend an inter-faith service.
